Colorado River Skeleton Tea Party Found by Diver Is Fake, Likely a Joke

A skeleton tea party was discovered at the bottom of the Colorado River by a scuba diver swimming near the Arizona-California border Monday morning, and authorities were soon relieved to discover the remains were fake.

According to The Arizona Republic, the fake skeletons were sporting aviator sunglasses, as well as what appeared to be bibs.

The Buckskin Fire Department said the remains were located near the Cienega Springs boat launch.

"When firefighter Foerstner located the alleged remains, he found it to be an underwater tea party with two fake skeletons sitting in lawn chairs," the sheriff's department said in a statement, NBC News reported.

One of the skeletons was holding a sign that was only partially legible. The sign included the words "Bernie" and "Dream in the River," as well as a date: "August 16, 2014."

Authorities speculated that the skeleton's might have been a joke similar to the movie "Weekend at Bernie's," and/or some type of memorial tribute.

"We like to show some things that are fun, some levity too," said Lt. Curtis Bagby said, explaining why the footage of the skeletons was released. "But in the meantime, don't think it's OK to go put something there."
